The big buzzword in my district lately is that we will eventually be going "paperless." There are a few teachers who are attempting to go this route already. As a primary teacher, this concerns me greatly. Yes, I do think that there are some great opportunities to have students complete projects and assignments electronically. However, they are still developing fine motor skills in the primary years. When I point this out, I am told that in the future people probably won't even be using paper and pencil to write anyway, and everything will be electronic. I'm just not buying it. It scares me to see 2nd-graders that still struggle to write their own name properly. I can't imagine what will happen if we go paperless. Does anyone else teach in a district that is trying to go paperless? I'm not worksheet-crazy or anything, but I just can't imagine not writing pencil to paper anymore.
